Today In DOCTOR WHO History: April 14th

Cat drivers, eh?
Welcome to our daily round-up of the Doctor Who episodes which received their premiere broadcast on this day throughout the show's long history, along with anything else of note that may have taken place. You can click on any red text to read our full retrospectives/reviews for that episode, and note that all viewing figures listed are for UK broadcasts (unless otherwise stated).

April 14th
Yesterday we celebrated the other Peter-Doctor's birthday, and today we wish a very happy one to Mr Capaldi who arrived on the planet April 14th in 1958. The man who would be the Twelfth Doctor shares his birthday with the now sadly departed Terrance Dicks. The legendary Doctor Who writer and script editor was born in 1935.

As for actual episodes of Doctor Who, well we have one classic and one modern broadcast on this day. The classic being the second episode of 1973's Planet of the Daleks, which was watched by a mighty 10.7 million viewers. The modern being the third story of Series 3, Gridlock, an episode which was watched by 7.4 million, with a fraction of the amount tuning in for BBC Three's behind-the-scenes Doctor Who Confidential episode, titled Are We There Yet?, broadcast straight afterwards.

Join us again tomorrow for another round-up of the episodes broadcast, the spin-offs aired, the special events, the birthday's celebrated and anything else of note that went down on this day in Doctor Who history.
